Pioneer of his time: Sadi Ozis (1923-2012) was one of the foremost designers of Turkish modernity. The designer, painter and sculptor was the first to develop modern furniture in Turkey. Together with his friend Ilhan Koman, Sadi Ozis founded "Kare Metal" in Istanbul in 1956, the first atelier for metal furniture in Turkey. Sadi Ozis was a professor at the Art Academy in Istanbul; his work as an artist won him numerous awards. Today, Neptun Ozis is continuing the work of his father, Sadi Ozis. With his design studio, the architect has made a name for himself on the world stage – in product design and in the building and interior design of yachts.
